3 talking points from a big Manchester United win at Newcastle

Manchester United got back to winning ways with a 4-1 victory at Newcastle United, courtesy of an amazing comeback.

Manchester United mounted an inspirational comeback to win 4-1 at Newcastle. The Red Devils picked up all three points in the Premier League for just the second time this season but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would certainly be a happy man given that his side visits Paris Saint-Germain during the Champions League fixture during the week.

Luke Shaw’s own goal on the second minute gave Newcastle United the lead. A few minutes later, Bruno Fernandes had a goal disallowed for offside before Harry Maguire struck an equalizer with a great header. The former Sporting Lisbon midfielder missed a penalty in the second half but scored the winner later on.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka got his first goal for the club to make it 3-1 before the 90-minute mark while Marcus Rashford sealed the deal in stoppage time.

Here is a look at the three talking points from the fixture.

Manchester United’s attitude in recent months has come under the scanner. Their defeat to Tottenham Hotspur by a thumping 6-1 margin called upon several players in question, but the club as a whole did manage to turn a corner in the first match following the international break.

Solskjaer’s men played incredibly well and showed the grit and passion which is needed for a club like the Red Devils. Having said that, this was also a commanding and morale-boosting win before the start of the Champions League and a run of difficult fixtures which always includes the visit of Chelsea to the Old Trafford next weekend.
